Techno-Economic Evaluation Of Hydrogen Infrastructure From Renewable Energy Resources: Application To Korean Hydrogen Economy
In this study we present a new framework for the design and economic evaluation of hydrogen infrastructure using
renewable energy resources. First, we model a renewable hydrogen supply system (RHSS) including various renewable energy
resources along with hydrogen technologies such as production, storage and transport. We then develop a multi-period
deterministic optimization model for the RHSS using a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) technique. With the
proposed model we identify the optimal RHSS configuration and its operation strategy. We finally apply the model to design
problem of the hydrogen infrastructure for the future Korea.
